Jello Cookie Mix

Mix well in big bowl with wire whisk:

1/2 cup sugar
1 (3 oz.) package Jello -- any flavor (orange, lemon, cherry)
1 tsp. baking powder
1 tsp. salt
2-1/2 cups flour

This makes about 4 cups mix, enough to fill a quart sized jar.

To give as a gift, place the lid on the jar and cut a piece of fabric in a circle which is several inches larger than the jar lid. Pinking shears make a nice edge. Secure the fabric to the lid with a rubber band. Attach the directions to the jar with a ribbon or raffia

Attach directions for baking the cookies:

Jello Cookie Mix

Mix 3/4 cup shortening, 2 eggs and 1 tsp. vanilla together in a bowl. Add entire contents of jar. Mix well.

Roll cookies into small balls. Place them on greased cookie sheets, then dip the bottom of a glass in sugar and press onto dough until flat.

Bake at 350 for 7-10 minutes until done but not browned.

Makes about 2-1/2 dozen cookies.
